Joel Embiid Will Rest vs. New York Knicks on Monday

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

According to a team official, Joel Embiid is set to rest against the Knicks as the team is coming off of a difficult stretch with three games in six days, which included a back-to-back on Wednesday and Thursday. During the Sixers’ first regular-season game against the New Orleans Pelicans a few weeks back, the Sixers star made contact with another player and injured his knee.

Although Embiid finished the season-opener matchup without getting pulled out of the game due to medical reasons, he battled through knee soreness through the next five games. Heading into the matchups against the Brooklyn Nets, Oklahoma City Thunder, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons, and the Atlanta Hawks, Embiid was questionable and considered a game-time decision for four out of the five matchups.
